Lodge pool is scheduled to open tomorrow


With cooler temperatures in the forecast this weekend, it’s not likely families will be clamoring to go to the pool. But for those warm days to come, here is some helpful information about pool hours and rules.

Located next to the Lodge, the Junior Olympic-size pool is for the enjoyment of members and their guests. Members must present their own valid POA card and be in good standing to use the pool, and they must accompany their guests at all times.

The pool varies from 3.5 feet to 8 feet deep with lap lanes at one end. A separate children’s pool is available for toddlers. The pool is ADA accessible and is kept at a constant temperature throughout the season. Showers, restrooms and vending machines are located at the pool, which is open March to November.

Starting tomorrow, the pool will be open for Lap Swim and Water Aerobics from 7 to 10 a.m., Monday through Sunday. Open Swim will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday. Hours will increase between May 23 and September 2.

Pool passes are available at Members Services to members requesting them for adult non-members who are responsible for the resident minor children of Canyon Lake members. This would include nannies, babysitters or any other individual responsible for the member’s minor children.

Pool Rules:

Here are a few of the pool rules. The complete list of rules can be found at www.canyonlakepoa.com.

  • There is no life guard on duty. Weak, inexperienced or non-swimmers must be accompanied by a responsible person who is of sufficient maturity, size and swimming ability to assist the person in the event of distress or emergency.
  • It is required that children 5 or younger be under the direct supervision of a responsible person of age at all times. Persons under 14 must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older. Persons 14 to 17 years of age may be unaccompanied by an adult; however, they are required to have their own valid POA card and are allowed to bring one guest to the pool.
  • The following are not allowed in the pool or pool deck: animals (except service animals), smoking, alcoholic beverages, glass containers, bicycles, skateboards or scooters; nor such activities as running, pushing, throwing, shoulder games and launching persons in the pool.
  • Proper swimwear must be worn; cut-offs are not allowed. All babies, toddlers and incontinent adults must wear proper waterproof swim pants or briefs in the pool. The swim pants or briefs cannot disintegrate in the pool and must have waterproof containment to ensure leak-proof protection.
  • At the pool attendant’s discretion, swimmers may be asked to remove their flotation devices, balls, boards, etc. on crowded days.
